Leaning from the window of his truck, the Driver asks if I will please go to the middle of the road, stop all traffic from 3 directions and re-direct him as he reverses from a street that is blocked.
I mutter that I don't think I can but he assures me that I will be able to do it. With all the confidence I can muster I take to the middle of the road and stop traffic from three directions. All drivers respond favourably and before I know it I am being a traffic bobbie.
I hand signal my truck driver to reverse towards me. We meet with success and my truck driver is on his way, waving enthusiastically and smiling brightly. One car driver starts it and honks at me and all cars follow suit. I blush and and wave my appreciation.
As I resume my journey and glance over my shoulder I see another nod of approval.
Have you been asked to do something you felt was out of your league?
